Urology 16 years experience
May not need it.: Cystitis cystica is more of a description of the appearance of the bladder lining than a disease diagnosis with a specific treatment. It is usually without symptoms and is often found in normal bladders, though chronic infections, bladder exstrophy, neurogenic bladder, or prior surgery can cause its formation. Treatment should be at correcting the underlying cause.
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Treat if symptomatic: Cystitis cystica is commonly associated with recurrent utis in children who need to be on long term antibiotic prophylaxis to control or prevent utis. Diagnosed by cystoscopic examination & frequently an incidental finding in adults. Dose not require tretment if subject is devoid of bladder symptoms &/or does not suffer from multiple utis.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Can cystitis cystica be cured?

Dr. Sean Williamson
Pathology 13 years experience
Cystitis cystica: Cystitis cystica is a benign (noncancerous) change that is thought to be a reaction to irritation and not a specific disease of its own. Sometimes it forms a small bump or a polyp-like area. Therefore a urologist might biopsy it to make sure it is not cancer. There is no evidence that it becomes cancerous over time. So it may not need to be cured unless there are other bladder problems.
